Can't get much easier but so worth it!

This was our second time to climb Truskmore and we've been lucky enough each time to get space to park at the start of the transmitter road at G7438546834 E. As we sat having some food in the van, we were shocked to see two cyclists coming down the road - keen fellas. We made it up in 1hr 20mins which isn't bad pace for the 4k we thought as we had our 6.5yr old with us - his highest elevation to date! Last time we were here we took him up in the pushchair and that took us 90mins - not many summits you can wheel a pushchair to - no excuse for anyone not to get up Truskmore and the views are really worth it.
